  1. I'm extremely confused as to why it's still doing this. I tested my microphone and it doesn't work with my voice. It just plays sounds from my computer. I played a youtube video and I could hear it but not my voice, so its playing sounds from my computer and not my voice.

    I've tried everything now. Reinstalled drivers, mic is unmuted, made sure it isn't the steromix selected.. etc.

    I have my microphone selected as default device and my headphones set as default. I've been through all the properties and still not luck, need help.

    How can a microphone play sounds? Microphone is an input device, so make sure it is set as such.
